An Ode is usually called Praise Poetry, so I'm thanking these elegant and gentle butterflies through a lot of spiritual symbolism, characterization, and my personal feelings when I spot one in the sky.

Ode of Butterflies


Oh! What beautiful creatures

Butterflies are!

So very near

And yet so far

Pollinating flowers

From spring to fall

Brightening the days of all.


But that’s not all

These soulful creatures do

They are often praised

In cultures, too

Guiding the living

Through trial and strife

And celebrating the dead

Through neverending life.


Oh! What would we do

Without these monarchs in the sky

Raising our joy

To levels sky-high

Dancing in air

Like kids of yore

We send our thanksgivings
